I posted a few weeks back and debated updating that post but my current name search has altered a bit so new post it is…
[name_f]My[/name_f] third little one is due this summer. They will be joining older siblings [name_m]Jabez[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] and [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Blessing[/name_f]. We are a Team [name_u]Green[/name_u] family so a boy and girl name have been on the search…
After much brainstorming (with you all helping ) and talking with hubby we’ve narrowed our girl possibilities to [name_f]Trinity[/name_f] and [name_f]Magdalene[/name_f].
With boy names were kinda of still where we started. Hubby likes [name_m]Gideon[/name_m]. I’ve been team [name_m]Jairus[/name_m] and both of us are slow to liking the others choice. With posting on here last time I think we’ve come to realize some things. A word name for a fn just isn’t gonna happen.
I’m writings for a couple things:
- [name_m]Jairus[/name_m] vs [name_m]Gideon[/name_m]? Maybe you can help us be swayed in one direction or another. I will say the hang up for each of us is the nickname potential. Hubby really dislikes the sound of “[name_m]Jairo[/name_m]”. I’ve never even suggested it he just hears [name_m]Jairus[/name_m] and defaults to [name_m]Jairo[/name_m]-related names period. [name_f]My[/name_f] hang up with [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] is what seems like the default nn’s as Gidge or even worst to me “Giddy”. I don’t like the idea of Giddy being used against them when they are having a bad day. Cause bad days are inevitable to everybody.
I don’t even know why nn’s are so big in either of our thoughts. With our two kids we got on the nn train of thought and honestly family came up with some we never thought of and so did we. And the ones we thought of ore-birth didn’t stick or barely have… but alas here we are.
- When I was brainstorming names I came up with some girl names that had zero biblical connection but had some fantastic meanings attached. When hubby and I were going over “the list” he said “those names are good and I could see any of them working if we didn’t like [name_f]Trinity[/name_f] and [name_f]Magdalene[/name_f] more.” With boy names I just haven’t found any names that appeals to me that has a good meaning attached to it. but his saying that made me think with all the names out there I should probably try to find some out.
We are pretty settled on the middle name [name_u]James[/name_u]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] lookIng to brainstorm more boy name ideas to go with it. Not looking for anything popular but nothing too out there, with a good meaning attached. And I learned last night hubby doesn’t want anything over 3 syllables.
Thank you for reading this and for any ideas!
